share this story
It's ok everyone, you can stop worrying -- Courtney Stodden is back on Facebook. (NOTE: Stodden's Facebook page was unavailable as of 10:42 p.m. ET Friday night; as of Sunday morning, it was back in service.)
The 17-year-old was banned from the website for allegedly being "too sexy," but her page is back up under the name Court Stodden, reports RadarOnline.
Stodden's mother, Krista Keller, told E! News yesterday that the social networking site had nixed Courtney's access nearly 10 times and has never answered her requests to look into the problem.
According to Keller, "It's the jealousy from the women towards her. The men love her, the women hate her. The women report the photo because it's so easy to do. You just click a button. They think she's too sexy, they all report her together, and it's done."
The child bride of 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison was thrilled to regain access to the site. "I am so happy that I've brought attention to the problem that I have had for so many other people," she told RadarOnline. "I was cyber-bullied and I hope this doesn't happen to other people."
It's Facebook's policy to disable users they deem to be fake, unverified or for publishing offensive content. While Courtney definitely posts racy photographs of herself, she's never nude, explained her mother. “Courtney has so much love to share that it is a shame that some people only want to try and victimize her," she told the website.
As it turns out, it was all a mistake. According to E! News, a rep from Facebook told them, "This page was removed in error and has been restored. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."
And if Mark Zuckerberg is for some reason a Courtney Stodden fan, her mother wants him to know she never blamed the billionaire for the problem.
"We always felt it was happening in the lower level somewhere," she told E! News. "We have the utmost respect for Facebook and Mark!"
